Cinco De Mayo

As many people plan to celebrate Cinco De Mayo whether it be in a small celebration by having some yummy dishes for you and your family to enjoy or  a large party where you will find all kinds of food to feast on with many guest present, it all falls under what you prefer.  

For our family we really don’t do much we acknowledge the date and may have some fun foods to go with the celebration, but nothing elaborate.  This year my husband and son will be doing a 30 hour famine to bring awareness to the starvation that is happening today in our world.  
So many young children lose their lives everyday because of this.  And in our own country there are many children that go to bed without supper or even go days without. 

If you would feel it in your heart to donate to this please see the link below.  This will help my son Tyler reach his goal for world vision, thank you in advance.

 Last night at about 11:00 p.m. yes, kinda late I know, I told my husband that I would make Black bean salsa for him to take to work and forgot so there I was in the kitchen at 11:00 p.m. making Black bean Salsa for Mark to take into work for their celebration it really doesn’t take long at all and it made for a happy husband.  What have you made today?  

Here are some of the simple recipes that may be fun for you and your family to make.  And if you feel like sharing with your neighbors I am sure they would always appreciate a special gift.
